At the contest, I accidentally announced 3rd Place Novice incorrectly :( I am very sorry about this mistake. Issaquah HS actually took 3rd Place scoring the same number of points as the Tahoma team I announced; however, Issaquah earned their points 15 mins faster than the Tahoma team.
Here are the detailed results for all teams

- Sample solutions [in python] [in java]
Thanks so much to everyone who came out to participate, judge, or support the contest. Hopefully we'll see you back next year for our December 2011 and April 2012 contests!
